First Line: All things shall die and decay; but the kingdom of allah endureth
Last Line: Praise we thy throne which fadeth never.
Subject(s): God; Islam


Oh, "Lord of awfulness and honor! we
Lack wit and words in fitly naming Thee.

All things shall die and decay; but the kingdom of Allah endureth,
Changeless in honor and might, changeless in glory and grace;
Blessèd be He who is Lord, possessed of all beauty and greatness;
All things die and decay; only endureth His face.

Dhu'l jalâl wa'l ikrâm! Thus ever
Praise we Thy Throne which fadeth never.
